USAID/Tanzania Overview

Tanzania has one of Africa’s fastest growing economies with nearly 7 percent annual GDP growth since 2000. While the Tanzanian economy has grown by leaps and bounds, widespread poverty persists with over 46 percent of the population living on less than $1.90 per day. USAID programs in Tanzania are consistent with U.S. foreign policy and the Government of Tanzania’s national development goals. By empowering Tanzanian women and youth, achieving inclusive, broad-based, and sustainable economic growth, and improving effective democratic governance, these programs aim to advance Tanzania’s socioeconomic transformation toward middle-income status by 2025.

USAID Fact Sheet on COVID-19 Assistance in Tanzania

USAID COVID-19 assistance in Tanzania is for: strengthening laboratory capacity for optimal diagnostics; communications about health risks; water and sanitation; the prevention and control of infections; public health messaging; virtual training for educators, and youth; and civil society support to monitor human rights issues.

Agriculture & Food Security

Overview: Agriculture and Food Security

The agriculture sector—which contributes nearly one-third of Tanzania's GDP and employs 75 percent of country's population—has the potential to increase incomes and improve livelihoods. With these goals in mind, Feed the Future – the United States Government’s global hunger and food security initiative – aims to reduce poverty and improve nutrition by supporting Tanzanian-led plans. This includes investing 80 percent of Feed the Future resources in the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (SAGCOT), a region the Government of Tanzania has identified as having the potential to make a significant contribution to the economic growth of the country. The remaining 20 percent focuses on development activities on the Zanzibar islands as well as in Manyara and Dodoma. 

Overview: Nutrition

As part of a comprehensive approach to nutrition, USAID focuses on reducing the prevalence of chronic undernutrition and maternal anemia in Tanzania through integrated health and agriculture programs and services at the district and community levels. Key nutrition investments include: 1) Strengthening of Government of Tanzania institutions and civil society organizations (CSOs) responsible for nutrition; 2) Scaling up social and behavior change efforts to improve infant and young child feeding practices; and 3) Increasing access to a healthy, diverse diet for mothers and children. USAID’s nutrition programming is fully aligned with the Government of Tanzania’s National Multi-sectoral Nutrition Action Plan (2016-2021).

Advancing Nutrition

The Government of Tanzania has demonstrated its commitment to fight malnutrition through a multi-sectoral approach. The presence of the National Multi-sectoral Nutrition Action Plan (NMNAP) has assisted the Government to align efforts to address both direct (nutrition-specific) and underlying (nutritionsensitive) causes of malnutrition across the country. Implementation of both nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions under the NMNAP is coordinated by the Primer Minister’s Office (PMO) with technical support from the Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre (TFNC). USAID Advancing Nutrition works to improve nutrition coordination and integration through three objectives.

Capacity Building in Agriculture

The Capacity Building in Agriculture activity supports the government of Tanzania to improve data collection and information dissemination, and connect key actors in the agricultural sector to develop income-generating activities for smallholder farmers.

Farmer to Farmer Access to Finance

Addressing deficits in the financial ecosystem hindering investment and growth in agriculture for individual farmers, as well as micro, small, and medium sized enterprises to increase agricultural productivity and improve access to markets for youth and women through capacity building and training, promotion of access to technology and development of innovative, targeted financial products.

Feed the Future Tanzania Advancing Youth

Tanzanian youth have the potential to play a key role in the economic development of their country, but for the 800,000 young people who enter the Tanzanian workforce each year, employment remains a challenge. The Feed the Future Tanzania Advancing Youth activity connects youth to entrepreneurship training, technical skills building, leadership development, healthy lifestyle cultivation, and employment opportunities.

Feed the Future Tanzania Alliance for Inclusive and Nutritious Food Processing

Good nutrition is vital to ensuring healthy families and communities. However, many Tanzanians lack access to nutritious, safe, and affordable foods, and more than a quarter of the country’s children under the age of five exhibit stunting. The Feed the Future Tanzania Alliance for Inclusive and Nutritious Food Processing (AINFP) activity tackles this challenge by strengthening Tanzania’s food processing sector.r.

Feed the Future Tanzania Mboga na Matunda (“Vegetables and Fruits”)

The Mboga na Matunda activity works toward making the horticulture subsector more competitive and inclusive while improving the nutritional status of Tanzanians by scaling improved technologies and practices that lead to increased productivity of smallholders, including women and youth, in targeted commodities; scaling market system models able to reach large numbers of direct and indirect beneficiaries, including vulnerable populations, while increasing trade for targeted commodities; and strengthening the overall capacity of the horticulture industry.

Feed the Future Tanzania Sera Bora (“Better Policy”)

SERA BORA (Better Policy in English) activity works to accelerate Tanzania’s adoption of more effective policies and programs in order to drive growth of the agricultural sector, improve household food security and nutrition, and reduce poverty.

Lishe Endelevu (“Sustainable Nutrition”)

Despite progress and government support, undernutrition remains a significant problem in Tanzania. USAID will continue to the national goal of reducing stunting in children by reducing stunting in children under age 5 in four target regions; increasing the proportion of women of reproductive age consuming a diet with a minimum acceptable diversity of foods, and increasing the proportion of children age 6-23 months receiving a diet with a minimum acceptable frequency of feeding and diversity of foods.

Scaling Seed Systems in Tanzania through Enhancement of Policy and Regulatory Reforms & Implementation

The activity seeks to increase access to quality seed for selected value chains by Tanzania smallholder farmers. The focus is to support the government and private seed companies to improve quality and increase quantity of certified seed for priority value chains in Tanzania; strengthen the seed distribution system for improved access to certified seeds; scale out farmer awareness and knowledge on use of quality seed and support the government in developing policies that promote increased production and supply of certified seeds.

Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance

Overview: Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance

USAID's programs build on previous work to counter closing civic and political space, bolster freedom of expression, improve the advocacy and communication capabilities of local organizations, promote transparent and accountable systems free from corruption, and strengthen human rights among vulnerable populations. These activities aim to achieve four sub-purposes: 1) improving the ability of targeted media and civil society organizations (CSOs) to provide more accurate and impartial information; 2) strengthening partner CSO capacities in targeted issue areas; 3) enriching platforms for dialogue that promote inclusive civic participation; and 4) improving citizen participation and oversight of elections and political processes. Additionally, USAID activities promote awareness of ethics regulations and target greater participation of women and youth in political processes. 

Boresha Habari (“Better News”) - Media and Civil Society Strengthening 

The USAID Boresha Habari activity supports an open, inclusive environment in which media and civil society provide accurate and impartial information that promotes participation, inclusion, and accountability. A core focus of this activity is to engage and empower women and youth. The goal is to elevate their voices, influence, and issues in the public sphere as both producers and consumers of information.

Data-Driven Advocacy

The Data-Driven Advocacy activity seeks to improve and sustain the ability of Tanzanian civil society organizations (CSOs) to influence policy on rights issues through the strategic use of better data and information. Data-Driven Advocacy will engage in a wide variety of sectoral issues, including land rights, gender-based violence, education rights, marginalized populations, and women and youth.

Mwanamke Imara

Mwanamke Imara (“A Strong Woman”) is a three-year activity which aims at addressing violence and structural discrimination against women and young people in Tanzania as stumbling blocks towards women and young people empowerment and progression in social, economic, political as well as cultural life.

Tanzania Electoral Process Observation (TEMCO)

Through the Tanzania Electoral Process Observation (TEPO) activity, USAID will support Research and Education for Democracy in Tanzania (REDET) to undertake processional and objective domestic observation of Tanzania’s 2020 General Election. With USAID assistance, REDET will recruit, train, and deploy both long and short-term domestic election observers to monitor the planning, administration, and conduct of elections.

Tushiriki Pamoja (“Participate Together”) 

The Tushiriki Pamoja activity seeks to strengthen and support civil society, in particular women, youth, and people with disabilities, to engage in and promote accountable and inclusive political processes. The activity aims to improve responsiveness of relevant institutions and organizations throughout the Tanzanian electoral cycle through engagement with voters, influential leaders, and members of electoral management bodies.

Wanawake Wanaweza (Women Can)

The activity promotes gender equality, political participation, and the empowerment of women to take on more significant leadership roles. USAID aims to ensure that women lead and participate in political and electoral processes—as voters, candidates, and elected representatives.

Economic Growth and Trade

Overview: Economic Growth

USAID works closely with the Government of Tanzania to implement activities that promote increased trade. USAID's trade and investment hubs are designed to reinforce regional and bilateral efforts to strengthen Africa's economic competitiveness and assist countries to take greater advantage of the trade opportunities provided by the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and other global trade initiatives. The trade and investment hub programs include trade capacity building, improvements to the private sector and enabling environment, better market access and opportunities, trade facilitation, food security programs, and export promotion support for African products. Through Feed the Future, USAID promotes policies that provide an enabling environment for private sector investment in agriculture, create more consistent market policies, promote gender equity within the sector, improve total productivity, and enable the implementation of key nutritional interventions. 

Tanzania Private Sector Engagement Fact Sheet

Private sector investment and entrepreneurship are essential to Tanzania’s economic development and its efforts to reach middle-income status by 2025. Private sector-led growth has the potential to sustainably generate jobs and economic opportunities for Tanzania’s growing population, particularly youth, while contributing tax revenue for public goods and services. 

East Africa Trade and Investment Hub (The Hub)

The USAID Hub partners with East African and U.S. businesses to attract investment that transforms the East African Private sector into vibrant global trading partners. To ensure that Tanzania continues to attract and maintain investment, the Hub provides customized technical assistance and training to the Tanzania Investment Commission, building the agency's ability to profile investment opportunities and facilitate deals.

Investment Support Program

The activity provides strategic planning and technical support to ministries, departments, agencies, and other institutions directly engaged in enabling agribusiness investment. Examples of support provided include analysis of issues regarding agribusiness investment opportunities, preparing briefs that recommend policy reforms encouraging investment, and work planning for assisted institutions.


Overview: Education

USAID’s education portfolio supports improving student outcomes in reading in Kiswahili, the local language, for grades one through four. To achieve this objective, USAID is working at the national, district, and ward levels—and to some degree the regional level—to build the capacity of Tanzanian government institutions such as the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology and the President’s Office for Regional Administration and Local Government on several policy and institutional issues. This means (1) working with key stakeholders on teacher guides, student materials, and the training to use them; (2) building coaching and mentoring support for teachers; and (3) collecting data that will enable decision-making based on sound evidence and research. USAID also supports increasing adolescent girls’ enrollment and retention in secondary school in Tanzania.

Engaging Communities to Improve Early Grade Reading

Overall in Tanzania, the primary school net completion rate is an alarmingly low 15% through grade 7 (30% urban versus 7% rural); with a literacy rate for Tanzanians, 15 years of age or older, of 58% overall, and 45% for females.  Completion rates have stagnated within the last 3 years due to inadequate infrastructure, poor teaching methodologies, limited instruction and time in school and high absenteeism among students, teachers and school administrators.  As a result, less than 5% of students demonstrate the desired grade-level reading proficiency by grade 3.

Jifunze Uelewe ("Learn and Understand")

Jifunze Uelewe ("Learn and Understand") is a four-year activity which aims to sustain improvement of literacy and numeracy for all learners in pre-primary and primary education. Tanzania has seen rapid growth in access to basic education, but the quality of education and learning outcomes remain lower than its peer countries. With the introduction of free pre-primary education, the number of teachers has been unable to match increased student demand.


Overview: Environment

Tanzania is endowed with abundant natural resources and has prioritized protecting its rich biodiversity by placing more than 32 percent of its land area under protection. However, Tanzania remains one of the world’s poorest countries, with the majority of the poor living in rural areas. It is estimated that up to 80 percent of Tanzania’s rural population relies on use of natural resources to sustain a livelihood, which makes stewardship of these resources a fundamental priority for Tanzania’s continued stability and growth. Recognizing that the drivers of poverty and biodiversity loss are linked, USAID partners with the government and people of Tanzania to improve environmental governance and management at a landscape scale, including building the nation’s capacity to reduce wildlife trafficking. This strategy involves developing and implementing key national environmental policies while supporting community-based conservation initiatives. 

Climate Change

In Tanzania, USAID prioritizes climate change programming across its portfolio. The governments of the United States and Tanzania address the drivers of climate change through mitigation and using adaptation to protect people and ecosystems from climate change impacts. From deforestation mitigation to food and water security, to livelihood adaptation strategies, USAID works with government and local partners to include development goals with climate smart actions.

Natural Resource Management and Biodiversity Conservation

USAID partners with the government and people of Tanzania to improve environmental governance and management at a landscape scale, including building the nation’s capacity to reduce wildlife trafficking. This strategy involves developing and implementing key national environmental policies while supporting community- based conservation initiatives.

Landscape Conservation in Western Tanzania

Partnering with the Jane Goodall Institute, the Landscape Conservation in Western Tanzania activity works to protect endangered chimpanzee populations, safeguard their habitat through effective land use planning, and empower local communities by supporting more productive livelihoods in the Gombe-Masito-Ugalla ecosystem. This ecosystem contains over 90% of Tanzania’s estimated 2,200 chimpanzees. 

Southern Highlands and Ruaha-Katavi Protection Program (SHARPP)

Working with three regions, three districts and nine communities, SHARPP's overall strategy is to improve management and protection of connectivity to conserve East Africa’s largest remaining elephant population, other key landscape species and the ecosystem services upon which communities depend.

Tuhifadhi Maliasili (“Preserve Natural Resources”)

The activity addresses major threats to Tanzania's biodiversity by:

1. Building institutional capacities of both public and private stakeholders
2. Increasing private sector engagement in biodiversity conservation and natural resources management
3. Improving the policy, regulatory, and enabling environment for biodiversity conservation and natural resourcemanagement

U.S. Department of the Interior: International Technical Assistance Program

USAID works with the U.S. Department of the Interior International Technical Assistance Program (DOI ITAP) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service International Programs (USFS IP) to provide government to government technical assistance to the government of the United Republic of Tanzania. Technical assistance supports and complements USAID’s biodiversity and climate change programing in Tanzania, as well as larger U.S. Embassy mission goals in the environment and natural resource sector.

Usimamizi Endelevu wa Maliasili (“Resilient Natural Resources Governance”)

The Usimamizi Endelevu wa Maliasili (“Resilient Natural Resources Governance”) activity works to conserve land, wildlife, forests, and water resources in the Lyamba lya Mfipa ecosystem. The activity also strengthens resilience of local communities in the Rukwa region through improved natural resources governance.

Gender and Youth Empowerment

USAID works to enable gender equality and empower women and youth, as the two groups play a key role in the progress and growth of Tanzania. With greater access to and control over resources, opportunities, and decision-making power, Tanzanian women and youth can sustainably reduce extreme poverty, build healthy communities, and promote inclusive growth.

Mwanamke Imara ("A Strong Woman")

Mwanamke Imara (“A Strong Woman”) is a three-year activity which aims to empower women and young people to address gender-based violence (GBV) and discrimination across three regions of Tanzania.


Global Health

Overview: Global Health

The United States and Tanzania have collaborated for decades to address critical health needs, with a focus on quality integrated services, health systems strengthening, and healthy behaviors. These efforts support Tanzania’s commitment to improve health outcomes and health care services, focusing on efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability. USAID’s work with the Government of Tanzania includes programs to address HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, family planning, reproductive health, nutrition, global health security, and maternal, newborn, and child health.

Family Planning

Family planning is key to Tanzania’s broad-based development, saves lives by helping reduce maternal morbidity and mortality, and increases newborn and child survival rates. USAID began supporting family planning in Tanzania in the late 1980s with a focus on increasing the prevalence rate of modern contraceptives, proving instrumental in building Tanzania’s national program. USAID’s family planning programs are integrated with other health services and non-health programs which contribute to the U.S. Government and Tanzania Government goals of reducing maternal mortality and improving child survival.


According to UNAIDS, adult HIV prevalence in Tanzania is estimated at 4.7 percent, with regional HIV prevalence ranging from 0.2 percent (Zanzibar) to 15.4 percent (Njombe). Tanzania’s goal is to reach HIV epidemic control by 2020, with 90 percent of people living with the disease aware of their HIV status, 90 percent of those testing positive placed on continuous HIV treatment, and 90 percent of those on treatment reaching viral suppression. In support of these objectives, USAID works to mitigate the impact and spread of Tanzania’s generalized HIV epidemic in partnership with the Government of Tanzania, other U.S. Government agencies, and a wide range of implementing partners through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).


Vaccines are one of the most cost-effective and lasting health investments, playing a vital role in reducing child mortality. The United States is one of the largest donors to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), committing more than $1.2 billion over the last 12 years to expand access to vaccines in the world’s poorest countries. Of this, over $250 million has gone to Tanzania since 2000. USAID has continued its commitment to reducing vaccine preventable deaths through support to the Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) since 2014, which is providing technical assistance to improve Tanzania’s routine immunization coverage for each annual birth cohort of over 1.8 million children.

Maternal & Child Health

USAID’s maternal and child health programs in Tanzania support activities in line with the Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Mortality Initiative, which prioritizes improved health for the most vulnerable women, girls, newborns, and children under five. At the national level, USAID provides technical assistance to the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children on the mainland and Zanzibar to enable the delivery of life-saving interventions for mothers, newborns, and children. Examples include developing clinical guidelines for preterm labor, treating newborn sepsis, introducing new vaccines, and deploying community health workers. Recent efforts with the Ministry of Health have focused on creating a framework for respectful maternity care.</p>

President's Malaria Initiative in Tanzania

The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) strives to reduce malaria deaths and substantially decrease malaria prevalence with the long-term goal of elimination. With support from PMI and its partners, malaria control interventions are being scaled up and critical commodities are being distributed to vulnerable populations. PMI employs an integrated approach emphasizing prevention through insecticide-treated bed nets, indoor residual spraying, and prevention of malaria in pregnancy. Disease control is also emphasized through prompt diagnosis and correct treatment, strengthened malaria surveillance, developing human resources capacity, and promoting positive behaviors for malaria prevention and case management.


Tuberculosis (TB) closely follows HIV and malaria as a major cause of illness and mortality in Tanzania, which is among the 30 highest-burden countries for TB and TB/HIV coinfection. USAID’s tuberculosis strategy in Tanzania supports the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Program (NTLP) to address systemic and operational challenges to preventing, detecting, and treating the disease. This includes improving access to quality, patient-centered care for TB, TB/HIV, and multidrug-resistant TB; preventing transmission and disease progression; and strengthening Tanzania’s TB platforms to reduce reliance on external financial and technical support.

USAID Afya Yangu Northern

The USAID Afya Yangu Northern is designed around client-centered approaches to address gaps in HIV, TB, and family planning (FP) service delivery, while continuously building and transferring the capacity of local stakeholders for sustainable and country-led ownership. USAID Afya Yangu Northern will focus intensely on direct service delivery across all regions in early project years, ensuring that gaps to epidemic control are identified, and tailored solutions are designed to meet the needs of vulnerable populations.

Afya Endelevu

The USAID Afya Endelevu (“Sustainable Health”) activity supports the Government of Tanzania to address human resources for health (HRH) gaps at the national, regional, and local government levels. The purpose of the Afya Endelevu activity is to develop and implement sustainable approaches to HRH recruitment, deployment, and management. The activity also supports the delivery of quality HIV and reproductive, maternal and child health services, and facilitates effective transitioning of contracted health care workers into the Government of Tanzania's HRH system.

Afya Shirikishi ("Participatory Health")

Afya Shirikishi (“Participatory Health”) is a five-year activity which aims to improve access to Tuberculosis (TB) and family planning (FP) services in nine regions of Tanzania. Tanzania ranks among the 30 highest TB-burdened countries in the world with an estimated TB prevalence at 295 cases per 100,000 population. Despite these challenges, the  National TB and Leprosy Program (NTLP), in collaboration with USAID and international and local IPs, has significantly addressed the TB burden in Tanzania, maintaining a decline in TB incidence rate above 4% per year. 

AIDSFree Strengthening Police and Prison Comprehensive HIV Services Project 

The AIDSFreeTanzania Strengthening Police and Prison Comprehensive HIV Services Project (SPPCHS) works to improve HIV and TB prevention, treatment, care, and support services within 55 high-volume police and prison healthcare facilities.

Hebu Tuyajenge (“Let’s Discuss Constructively”)

Hebu Tuyajenge (“Let’s Discuss Constructively”) engages people living with HIV (PLHIV) via Tanzania’s National Council of People Living with HIV in Tanzania (NACOPHA). The activity engages HIV-positive individuals and groups in design, implementation, and monitoring of HIV activities delivered in communities.

Leveraging and Advancing the Private Health Sector (LEAPS)

Leveraging and Advancing the Private Health Sector (LEAPS) is a five-year activity which aims to strengthen reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH) services, among other health areas. Mortality rates in Tanzania remain high due to limited access to health services and inadequate skills among healthcare workers (HCWs) to manage causes of maternal death, as well as high loss to HIV/AIDS follow-up, especially for pediatric HIV exposed infants.

Okoa Maisha, Dhibiti Malaria (“Save Lives, End Malaria”)

Okoa Maisha Dhibiti Malaria (OMDM) seeks to institutionalize malaria surveillance and monitoring at all levels of the Government of Tanzania. The activity seeks to maximize the epidemiological impact of implemented malaria interventions by improving the targeting and implementation of interventions, refining approaches to manage transmission foci and respond to outbreaks, and providing key data to the GOT and stakeholders for policy development and programmatic decision-making.

Pamoja Tuwekeze Afya ("Together Let's Invest in Health")

Pamoja Tuwekeze Afya (“Together Let’s Invest in Health”) is a five-year activity which aims to establish a self-reliant faith-based health facility network with financial and organizational capacity to sustainably provide quality healthcare. The United States and Tanzania have collaborated for decades to address critical health needs, with a focus on quality integrated services, health systems strengthening, and healthy behaviors. These efforts support Tanzania’s commitment to improve health outcomes and health care services, focusing on efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability.

Police and Prisons

Police and Prisons is a five-year activity which aims to improve HIV and TB prevention, treatment, care, and support services within 32 prison healthcare facilities. Prisoners are at greater risk of acquiring tuberculosis (TB), with many prison health facilities having limited ability to deliver comprehensive HIV and TB services. Police and prison staff also face higher risk than the general population due to their frequent relocations among other factors.

Public Sector Systems Strengthening Plus (PS3+)

The PS3+ activity works with the Government of Tanzania (GOT) to institutionalize public sector systems that are responsive to citizens’ needs for essential quality public services at the local level, particularly for underserved populations. PS3+ strengthens GOT management systems, especially at the local level and promotes increased citizen engagement in the transparent governance of public services.

Tanzania Vector Activity (TVCA)

Tanzania, with assistance from Global Fund and the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) is providing insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) free of charge through all public health facilities nationwide to pregnant women at their first antenatal care clinic visit and to infants during their measles vaccination. In addition, on Mainland Tanzania, ITNs are delivered annually to primary school children in selected grades in all public schools in 14 regions of the country that were reported to have a malaria prevalence greater than 10 percent.

Tohara Salama (“Safe Circumcision”)

The Tanzania National Multi-sectoral Framework for HIV and AIDS recognizes VMMC as a highly effective HIV prevention intervention that has the potential to reduce the risk of female to male transmission by at least 60%. Male circumcision also reduces sexually transmitted infections (STIs), particularly ulcerative STIs, including herpes and syphilis, and penile cancer. As a VMMC priority country, Tanzania began its program in 2009 in four regions, targeting males 10-34 years of age for circumcision as part of HIV prevention for epidemic control.

Tulonge Afya (Let's Talk about Health)

The USAID Tulonge Afya activity works to improve health status, especially of women and youth, through the promotion of positive health practices in households and communities. Tulonge Afya catalyzes opportunities for Tanzanians to improve their health status by addressing sociocultural norms and supporting the adoption of healthier behaviors.

Uhuru-TB&FP LON ("Freedom-Tuberculosis & Family Planning")

Uhuru-TB&FP LON (“Freedom-Tuberculosis & Family Planning”) is a five-year activity which aims to improve access to and use of quality Tuberculosis (TB) and family planning (FP) service delivery in public and private sector health facilities in four regions of Tanzania. TB case finding and detection are challenged by inappropriate management, poor documentation, inadequate collection systems and diagnostic capacity, along with sociocultural barriers, stigma, and gender disparity. Despite these challenges, the NTLP, in collaboration with USAID and international and local IPs, has significantly addressed the TB burden in Tanzania.

Water and Sanitation

Maji na Usafi wa Mazingira

In collaboration with local governments, private sector and communities, USAID Tanzania’s Maji na Usafi wa Mazingira (MUM) Activity will work directly with national, regional and district stakeholders to improve Tanzanian systems for planning, financing, and implementing actions to expand access to WASH and WRM services, using four complementary implementation strategies: building ownership through continuous stakeholder engagement, strengthening organizational systems and services, applying market-based principles, and learning by doing in 10 districts in four regions of Morogoro, Iringa, Njombe and Rukwa in the Rufiji, Lake Nyasa, and Lake Rukwa basins.
